Speed limit changes planned in Clover

Speed limit changes are planned in the Clover area, after traffic engineers with the S.C. Department of Transportation completed a speed study on U.S. 321 north of Clover to the state line.

Using engineering judgment and radar studies information, they have decided to adjust the speed limit as follows:

• Increase the speed limit to 45 mph at around Mountain View Street (Clover Motel) northbound

• Decrease the speed limit to 50 mph where it is 55 mph just north of Old Carriage Road and continue 50 mph to just before Bowling Green in the area of Flatstone Drive.

• Increase the speed limit to 45 mph just before Flatstone Drive in Bowling Green and continue 45 mph to the North Carolina state line.

• The southbound speed zones will match the above mentioned northbound changes.

The York S.C. DOT maintenance office will make the changes as soon as their schedule allows. No date change will be announced.
